Once upon a time, Crocs footwear decided to start producing school bags for children. They thought it would be nice to reach out to the urban market, so they designed a hip bag screened with photos of street graffiti. Seems the "f*#! you" verbage made it past the legal department, and is now making it's way into an elementary school near you!
Let's try to go out and find where we can buy one of these bags before they do a recall and pull all the fun product out of stores. Email pics if you've got one, we wanna see!

So I was poking around on the internets, and I stumbled upon this gem. His name is Nick Hudon. There is no greater example of a total LA douche then this ass. I checked. I went to the dictionary immediately and wouldn't you know, Nick Hudon's picture was filed under "World's biggest Douche-bag"
Can you hear it now? His "sexy cool guy trendy voice" giving the interview:
"So where do you hang out?"
"Yeah like, I hang out at Chateau Marmont, that's French. I love the French, there's something so powerful and f#%king sexy about them."
"What shows do you watch on TV?"
"I watch my favorite shows on DVD because TV is so American. I just think there are all these really ignorant people out there that watch TV all day long and don't have real jobs that make a difference."
"What do you do for work?"
"Yeah, I'm a photographer. Thats French."
END INTERVIEW WITH DOUCHE

This is totally sick. Some graffiti artists are taking tagging to a new level. They use light and time-lapse photography to capture their mid-air creations. Flashlights, reflectors, glowsticks, and even torches are used to tag, as the artist becomes a blur. See more photos here.

"Hey (insert coworker name here), how about we go grab a quick bite to eat. Maybe get a boob job on the way back to the office?"
A Californian biotech company is said to be rolling out a fast-track breast enlargement process possibly as soon as next year. The procedure, called Celution, uses the extracted fat from the buttocks or stomach, which is rich in stem cells. It will take just over an hour to inject the super-charged dose of stem and regenerative cells into the breast tissue, which will then enlarge over the next six months.
See full story here.
Dr. Lionell Bissoon, out of New York, says that in order to keep the cottage cheese off your ass, you gotta get rid of the panties and go "commando". He says that all underwear, especially granny panties, have elastic that pulls tight across your butt and thighs. They don't allow your blood to flow, which then leads to dimply buttocks and flabby inner thighs.
According to the doctor, if you must wear underwear, the best kinds are lace panties or thongs. But to truly take care of your booty, go bear bummed. And stay commando through the night too, because your blood will flow better without restriction.

With all the buzz surrounding Apple Computer's art theft, I've found the courage to bring to light the fact that my own artistic expression also was brutally stolen by Steve Jobs and Co.
It all started when my mom packed in my brown lunch sack a tasty apple. I took the first bite. Then I placed it on my desk, and as I gazed down I realized I wanted to pay tribute to it's delicious and succulent flavor by immortalizing it in paint. It doesn't really matter that I was in Kindergarten when this all took place. The real issue here is my rights as an artist. This is my intellectual property. Apple has made millions and their logo has become a worldwide icon. I should be compensated for the painstaking hours I spent creating such a magnificent piece of work which they then ripped off for a profit.
As artists we all need to stand up against big bully corporations such as Apple. We have rights, and will not be pushed around any longer.
Engadget has an excellent article showing side by side comparisons of other artists that have been knocked off by Apple. Note to Apple: stop being a biter!
